PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The first half of February is the peak season for snow for the Delaware Valley. If you are a snow lover, there is good news as the weather pattern remains active during the next week or so.
Our next storm will develop on Tuesday and track just to our south on Wednesday.
Clouds will return during the day on Wednesday with some rain developing late in the afternoon or early evening as highs reach the low to mid 40s. Some colder air will get drawn into the region, so a changeover to snow will occur during the evening hours.
Many areas will see some accumulation, possibly a few inches of wet snow but the amounts are still uncertain at this time. Temperatures will be on the milder side so the snow may have a harder time sticking to the roads initially.
The storm will be a fast mover and be gone well before daybreak on Thursday. Expect sunshine to return on Thursday with highs back into the mid 40s.
Some big changes in the jet stream will occur this weekend. A deep trough or dip in the jet stream will develop over the eastern U.S. This will allow for arctic air to spill into the Delaware Valley with highs only in the 30s with the chance for some snow showers.
